Carlisle approves Citadels rebirth

  • 6 Aug 2022

Planning permission for the University of Cumbria’s flagship Carlisle Citadel campus project has been approved by Carlisle City Council. The project is part funded by £50m from Carlisle’s share of the Borderlands Growth. The project will establish the University of Cumbria campus firmly within the city centre of Carlisle, with a view to consolidate its Carlisle operation onto one single, central site.


Largely funded through a £50m grant from the Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities, the new campus will offer more than 150,000 sq ft of educational and amenity space for students and staff.
